Tennessee Tidbits Too-

We found another great little day trip when visiting in Tennessee and wanted to share.
It is a lovely little town , laid back , full of things to see- thought we would tell you about a couple of them so you can go see for yourselves..

We were in the quaint little town of  Bell Buckle, TN.

The town, although quite small offered a “home-town” charm complete with a cafe on the square 
( great burger )  several small antique shops, and a wonderful ice cream parlor complete with beautiful, original display cases. The kind of case that has rich & dark ( not chocolate , although it sounds good..)  wooden fronts and original glass...

Don't you just love the patina of dark aged wood , &  the way old
glass ages ?   Just gorgeous. 

Had to show you up close.. cute,  right ?  just so quaint

Our favorite antique shop , Phillips General Store- was styled , stacked and otherwise 
 A-R-T-F-U-L-L-Y  laid out - truly , the man’s a display genius !      

The owners are 3rd generation antiques dealers, and have the ability to style the store , literally by “ Color “.  Beautiful -  I didn’t want to leave.

The owner  was very friendly, & sent us down the street to his Fathers Ice Cream shop- the one complete with all the original dark wooden  vintage counters. Oh , and really
delicious ice cream.

I managed to snap a few photos for you to enjoy the layout of this favorite antique shop in Historic Bell Buckle, TN.

White, dove white, creamy whites, off whites..   All beautiful.

Choose from jsut about any color you like- It was there...

I am always drawn to the calming shades of greens

Do they have blue you ask ?  Well, of course... It was like a rainbow in his shop !

Another great place to just enjoy the day , eat a little.. shop some and breath a deep sigh.
All in All- Tennessee is just beautiful, friendly people and a nice place to unwind your clocks.

P.S. Still trying to get to that chair... or bench.. been in
       the hospital here in Houston with My Darling all
       week.  It's down on the list of priorities at the moment.
      Hoping to get one done soon to show you.

Till next time-
